published on UK Free TV

Freesat today announced its viewers will be able to enjoy news channel NHK World in HD when it launches on the subscription-free satellite TV service in May 2011. NHK World will be the first news channel to broadcast in HD on Freesat.

Already available to Freesat customers in standard definition, the channel offers a truly international perspective on world news and affairs. A hugely trusted service, it has acted as a vital information line to the rest of the world during recent tragic events in Japan. Alongside updated news feeds, NHK World also offers a range of programme genres ranging from music, art and cooking to travel, business news and science.

Freesat SD customers can continue watching NHK World 24/7 on Channel 209, whilst HD viewers will have access to NHK World HD on the same channel number.

Good how they got it to work on same number as SD, clever the Japanese. BBC, ITV and Ch4 all use two numbers, and confuse us.

David: The BBC, ITV1 and Channel 4 HD services do not yet have their regional services/adverts, so the HD services do not displace the SD service.
